The Power of Community Changes Kids' Lives
When students are faced with insurmountable barriers - lack of access to adequate healthcare, the death of a parent, broken home structures - that might keep them from actualizing their dreams, Communities In Schools is there. But we cannot do this work alone. We need you.
Right now, in the U.S there are 14.5 million children living in poverty. The collateral effects of being in the margins of society follow those young people as they go to school each day. That's why Communities In Schools works inside k-12 schools to help underserved students reach their potential by offering access to resources.
Our work at Communities In Schools of the Heart of Texas spans 19 schools in 6 districts. Though we've helped thousands of kids stay in school to focus on their education, there is still much work to be done. By chipping in $5 today, you are advancing the Communities In Schools mission of ensuring all kids have the opportunity to succeed in life.
